Cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome (CHS) is a relatively rare condition after carotid endarterectomy (CEA) or carotid artery stenting (CAS) but is potentially prevent- able. CHS may be defined as focal cerebral damage fol- lowing a revascularization procedure, usually as a result of hyperperfusion.

Risk Factors for Perioperative Death and Stroke After Carotid

Conclusions Several sociodemographic, neurological, and comorbidity risk factors predicted perioperative death or stroke after carotid endarterectomy. This information may help inform decisions about appropriate patient selection, assessments about the impact of different surgical processes of care on outcomes, and facilitate comparisons of

Carotid endarterectomy (CEA) is one of the surgical procedures most commonly performed for carotid artery stenosis in addition to carotid artery stenting (CAS). In this article, we will cover a concise review of the perioperative management in CEA. The Basics

Thus cerebral blood flow and cerebral perfusion are too high

For carotid endarterectomy (CEA), many studies recommended waiting for at least 4 to 6 weeks to reduce perioperative risk of complications. 46,47 However, more recent studies have found reduced risk of second stroke with no dif - ference in perioperative complications after early CEA within 1 to 2 weeks.48 50
